Reproducable crash with Auto Duck in macro


My Audacity crashes when I want to edit the Auto Duck settings in a Macro.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Tools->Macro Manager
  2. New
  3. Insert->Auto Duck->Edit Parameters

3. Insert->Auto Duck->Ok
4. Select Auto Duck Step->Edit

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19045.2251]
Audacity 3.2.1

Can anyone confirm this? Or is it just me?

This is a known and logged bug that has already been fixed for the upcoming 3.2.2 release.

Crash editing Amplify (and some other effects) macro parameters #3769


Thank you for the quick response and information!

Hello, the crash seems fixed now, thank you for that!

But I have a new issue now with Auto Duck in macros: When I want to edit the parameters of Auto Duck in a macro I now get the error: ‘Auto Duck needs a control track which must be placed below the selected track(s).’

I have a workaround to export the macro, edit the Auto Duck parameters and import the macro again. But I guess this should not be the case. :slight_smile:

This problem has been reported to the developers here:
